iPhone Tracker: your phone knows where you have been

leave a comment »

Have you ever been in a situation where you just can’t remember what was that place where I saw the street spider-man dancing to a gummy bear song ? Well admit it and say “yes”.
So to fill up your memories shortcomings a hacker from UK and an ex-Apple britishers developed this iPhone Tracker that can show you where you iPhone has been in past few days/months.
iPhone stores the location data hidden and unencrypted in the device according to experts Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden.
With right software, it can be used to map exactly where the person has been. Now this is scary for most of the people out there. You never know who is tracking you.
This feature has been added since iOS 4 and experts think it is “clearly intentional”.
Now i dont know what are intentions of Apple are but it was very interesting to see your foot prints on the map.
The map shown on the left shows is self explanatory. Its great for user to know where they last used their stolen wallet or locate that cool restaurant at the corner of intersection-of-this and this.
You can download the software iPhone Tracker from the website and use it on own computer which musch more safer than processing online. The data is also transferred to the owner’s computer and stored in a file there each time the two devices are connected to carry-out a backup or synchronisation.
“But it is an object lesson about reading the terms and conditions”
